KROQ Presents U2 at the Rose Bowl May 20th with The Lumineers @kroq @rosebowlstadium @u2 #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

U2 will be coming to the Rose Bowl on Saturday, May 20, 2017 with special guest The Lumineers. The show was announced as part of their Joshua Tree tour, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the band’s 5th studio album.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, January 17th at 10am via Livenation.com.


The band posted a video on Christmas Day promising a “big year for the U2 group” with the release of Songs of Experience (the follow-up to 2014’s Songs of Innocence), as well as some “very special” Joshua Tree shows. Those shows will take the band through North America and Europe, including their first-ever US festival performance at Bonnaroo.

“It seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally writtten, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk,” reflects The Edge. “To celebrate the album – as these songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too – we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. We’re looking forward to it.”
